Statement attributable to the PGA on Istanbul attack

New York, 28 June 2016 — The President of the United Nations General Assembly Mogens Lykketoft expressed anger and grief over the terrorist attack at Istanbul’s Atatürk Airport tonight.

“Once again we experience the senseless killing of innocent and peaceful civilians. Once again we mourn the lives lost and sympathise with those left behind. The international community must – through much closer cooperation – redouble efforts to contain and fight radical and violent extremism,” he said.
